Friday's ONT Has The Rockin' Pneumonia And The Boogie Woogie Flu

Everything is about the Wuhan Flu, and I'm sick of the damn flu. I'm sick of the MSM sucking off the commies, and I'm sick of what seems more and more of a monumental overreaction to the actual threat. Since last Sunday, I've been keeping track of the number of deaths in the US. Not cases - anyone with half a brain realizes that as testing ramped up, the number of cases would too - deaths. Here are the numbers, taken roughly every 12 hours since last Sunday at noon: 402, 417, 473, 521, 592, 746, 849, 1042, 1046, 1296, and 1301 at noon today. As of this writing, the number is 1581 (all data from CSSE at JHU). It's obviously a serious situation, but serious enough to justify throwing our economy into a blender (and then increasing out national debt by 10% in one stroke because “the economy is in a blender!” ) in a nation that murders 2500 babies a day in service of a woman's constitutional right to fuck her brains out as much as she wants without any chance of consequences? I'm having a real hard time seeing how the numbers justify the response, Jack, a real hard time, and it's starting to piss me off. I doubt I'm the only one.

Oh, and one other thing that I asked the other day and haven't really seen an answer to: Where are all the homeless deaths? If Wuhan Flu is as deadly as they say, why isn't it ravaging a population that, generally speaking, is less healthy, lives in less sanitary conditions, and has higher rates of drug addiction and mental health issues?

Enough about the flu. Like I said, I'm sick of it, but there's not a lot of stuff on other subjects out there right now, which means this ONT will be light on links and heavy on pics and memes.

43 Back in the glorious days of Soviet Power, Radio Moscow's news bulletins on the hour would start with a little melody*, then "Moscow time is blah blah blah".

What, 11 time zones in the USSR? Something like that. Forget. Lots, anyway. So made sense.

* I remember it as the motif from "Moscow Nights", but the historic WWII bulletins with Yuri Levitan use a different melody

Haven't done less yet felt so burned out in a long, long time.

And Trump is correct about Summers Eve Inslee.


Local rumored word is Inslee called the Obama gal that runs GM and they stopped the local company from helping GM to duplicate their ventilator manufacturing process.

I know someone involved first hand with the local company leaders


The local company is working double 10 hour shifts, and GM project manager was there last weekend to learn the process.

Everyone involved was gung ho, full steam ahead.

Then, Inslee talked with the GM chick yesterday, and the knowledge transfer was put on hold.

Everyone working on the project was pissed.

Inslee was grandstanding.

Inslee is.a puke and a cokksukker.

Ch. Soyara's I'm Their Devil
July 30, 2012 - March 27, 2020

The X-rays showed Max had a badly enlarged heart. His heartbeat was very rapid and his breathing was labored. The vet said we could try Lasix, but it wouldn't turn this and we'd be looking at six months at the outside.

Her Majesty and I agreed that would just be temporizing, that he was suffering now, his life would never be healthy and it would be better to let him go to spare him an ugly end. The logistics were difficult but Max passed away in Her Majesty's arms.

This has been a very hard year. We've lost Leo, Carmen and now Max in the last two months. Please believe me when I say our dogs are well taken care of and cherished, from the top-winning special to fat, neutered Mr. Peanut (who deserves the Good Boy Medal).

Rest well, big black Max. And wait for us.

155 So sorry Hadrian. It's just been a bad year

Special baby kitty Fanny kept me up last night. She started out fine, then puked up everything. She does that sometimes so I wasn't too worried. Then she was in the catbox about 20 times in a hour and seemed to be straining. She hacked up a hairball, then started puking up fluid every hour or so, until about 3. She runs across the bed and into the bathroom to puke, which makes cleanup easier. Still under the weather this morning, so I called tge vets.

That was interesting too. You call them from the parking lot when you arrive. They come out to your car. Most were wearing face masks. They have you sign the consent form, then take the animal in. Their front door was locked. Fanny checked out okay and is back home with antibiotics. Maybe I'll get to sleep tonight.

I'm seeing (and hearing) this X22 stuff. Folks, that stuff is weapons grade tinfoil.

No the Treasury hasn't taken over the Fed. Trump hasn't nationalized the Fed. The Fed is national anyway, just likes to pretend to be a private enemy. No, a cabal of banksters doesn't make profit running it. You know who gets the profits the Fed makes from money creation? Uncle Sam. Uncle Sam pays zero interest on all the debt the Fed has monetized, since it is immediately returned to the Treasury as profit.

No, to the immediate issue. Treasury is helping the Fed create so-called Special Purpose Vehicles, or SPVs.

The Fed is shifting the printers to ludicrous speed. To buy, backstop and bailout ALL THE THINGs, the Fed needs to buy and lend to, uh, "entities of questionable solvency" one might say.

IOW, the Fed will need to take dogshit on its balance sheet. But the law doesn't allow the Fed to put dogshit on its balance sheet. Basically it has to have sovereign debt level credit ratings.

So, it needs to make dogshit look like fine Belgian chocolate.

How does it do this? Via SPVs. Treasury creates them or helps create them, and injects capital into them. Where does it get this capital? Borrows it. Which the Fed monetizes (or bond market buys) it. Now, the SPV has the credit rating of Uncle Same backing it.

SPV then buys dogshit using Fed's created money. On Fed's balance sheet, you have the Uncle Sam backed SPV, which looks like fine Belgian chocolate.

That's what's going on. They did this back in '08. First SPV which bough Bear Stearns dogshit was called Maiden Lane.

That's all that's going on.

But if the false flag warnings, habeas corpus suspension, deep state arrests, medical ships used for arrests, and going after Soros is all about to happen within the next few days or weeks...

them and the hula hoops you were supposed to toss them into.)

Tetherball was always fun, but lawn darts were awesome. Even an 8 year old could get a good lob out of those. And getting hit with them? You had to be a total idiot or trying to get hit.

I was talking about the Fed going into overdrive to print money like crazy and back up everything. Try to stop the stock market dive and the corporate credit crunch (which it pretty much has. At least the bottom is in, I think).

Yes, the Fed is doing all this, blowing up its balance sheet to $5.3T. Printing money (electronically) that give Rudolf Von Havenstein a raging hard-on in his grave.

But nope, no tinfoil hat conspiracy stuff is going on of the X22 and similar level.

He finally got the ear of the big boss, who told the lower ranking managers that *you give good employees consideration when you can*, so it was approved.

Starting Monday, instead of a 1 hour/32 mile commute each way, the boy will be driving 3 minutes, 3/4 of a mile. So much more time for himself and his family.

I am glad I will no longer be stressing about his long drive, on busy interstates, in crappy weather, with idiot drivers.

257 Boredom can play an amazing role in people's lives. Some historians even have cited boredom as a key factor in the witch trials.

I've thought that this explains a lot of the popularity of "alternative" gender descriptors.

You're a hairstylist, with a boring life, and announcing that your are "genderqueer" is an attempt to appear more interesting.

261 I'm getting kinda freaked out about the predicted outbreak in central/northern Illinois.... not the Kung Flu outbreak but the tornado outbreak that some of the weather people are predicting for tomorrow.

Chatter among the storm chasers is centered on one particular computer model predicting an apocalyptic outbreak of long tracked, possibly violent twisters with the potential to ravage every major city between St. Louis and Chicago, but there are others cautioning that this particular model tends to overdo severe weather parameters and other models show a less dire outcome. (Now where have we seen that before?)

Meanwhile there is a bit of an online debate taking place about whether storm chasers will be in violation of the IL stay at home order, whether potentially exposed/infected people who live in mobile homes, etc. should go to community tornado shelters..... this could get interesting.

269 It's obviously a serious situation, but serious enough to justify throwing our economy into a blender (and then increasing out national debt by 10% in one stroke because "the economy is in a blender!") in a nation that murders 2500 babies a day in service of a woman's constitutional right to fuck her brains out as much as she wants without any chance of consequences? I'm having a real hard time seeing how the numbers justify the response, Jack, a real hard time, and it's starting to piss me off. I doubt I'm the only one."

To begin, I want to say that I think the response to this WuFlu has been way too extreme - this should have been dealt with the way the H1N1 epidemic in 2010 was dealt with. Thinking we can shut down everything is insane. Also, I think the majority of the illness will be past, at least in this country, by May 1st. maybe a couple weeks earlier,even. Second, I strongly support every step Trump has taken, ESPECIALLY the $2 trillion bailout, and the Fed flooding the markets with liquidity. I think that buys us about 30 days, and maybe after that the system can be self sustaining. If not, we might have to double down, but we can wait and see.

I aggravated some here earlier in the week by harping on economics, but just to repeat, and to point out why this was so necessary: Economically, when combined with the secondary collapse being caused by the Oil War, this was not a "downturn" or a "recession" or even another Depression. What was beginning makes all of those fade into insignificance - we were looking (well we still are) at what was going to be 2 or 3 times as devastating, economically, as the Great Depression was at it's peak. 30% unemployment guaranteed, building to 50% and maybe more. The death of *every* independent business in this country.

Economically, we were/are standing on the brink of an Extinction Level Event. You may not believe it was that bad, but I can assure you that everyone at Morgan Stanley and everyone on Trump's team, including Trump himself, are absolutely convinced of that. We either throw however man trillions at it that we can Right Now, to try to stop this, or we accept that our markets, our pension funds, our society, and most likely even the Country itself, are lost forever. Even now, we are within days of that kind of meltdown happening - the only thing stopping it is the Governments willingness to print WHATEVER it takes to buy any asset, bail out any business, and prop up any valuation that it can.

will this lead to long term problems? Of course, terrible ones - but you don't worry about the problem you might have 5 years from now when you're about to die tomorrow. So, we HAVE to go big, no limits, throw everything we have at this and even more. If it only costs $2 trillion, that's cheap. If it ends up costing $10 trillion, we still have to do it, because we lose everything - and I mean EVERYTHING - if we don't.

As I said above, Trump knows this - he gets it perhaps better than anyone. I'm eternally glad he's leading us now, he may be the only one who could have done it.

Funny you should mention that, I was thinking weather models and virus models have a lot in common. Possibility of input error, model bias, human bias, etc.

Yesterday in Ohio they said peak would likely be end of April/early May with 6,000 cases daily. Now they're saying later in May with 10,000 cases daily. Why such a change in one day? Regardless, I'm sure they're going to use that to say we need to be locked inside for infinity.

You toss that off in a way that tells me you don't understand how resilient medieval societies were, on matters of basic survival, and how unsuited we are. We've forgotten what generations before us took for granted. Even through the 1920's and 30's, most houses (even in cities) had chicken coops out back for meat and eggs, you didn't go to a store from them. The farmer you got milk from lived a little walk from you, you made your own dairy products, the women sewed clothes for the family, you got herbs from your own garden plot. There was no big interconnected society; but that meant when big things happened elsewhere, the people could still survive.

We now live in this huge interconnected machine that no one understands completely, and if we let it break down, it breaks down everywhere and all at once. We've taken risks we don't even understand. In many ways, Medieval folk were a lot smarter about survival than we are.

336 This is more of a rhetorical question, but I'm super curious to know the answer to this question:

What percentage of respiratory infections are transmitted in the following places?

1. In the home
2. In schools
3. In the workplace
4. In public

Seems half the country is on board with everyone being stuck for two-weeks in the home together in order to avoid all other situations at all costs. But I wouldn't be surprised that the lion's share of infections happen in the home and in grade-school. I note that Japan only shut down schools while somehow miraculously avoided a widespread outbreak. This policy seems more based on intuition than science (past experience).

Also, LEOs weren't patrolling and the highways were like Sunday mornings. I was able to easily and safely do 120+ mph for extended distances down highways that were usually creeping along at 20-30mph at that same time.

But, my opinion is that it is weapons grade tinfoil. No the era of central banking is not over. Donald Trump is not trying to destroy the central bank system of the world. Hell, his only complaint about the Fed was it was being to too tight. He's fine with it now.

There has been a Great Depression level shock to the US and world economy. Central banks are going YOLO to try to save it and prevent the Greater Depression.

Total world stimulus is about $12T, 5T fiscal and 7T from central banks. Uncle Sam and the Fed handled $2T and 4T of that. The ECB, BoE, and the others are handling the rest of it.

I'm going to have to have surgery within the next few months to replace my ICD; that surgery is not elective, unless I'm electing not to stay alive. I hope this lockdown/shutdown crap is over by then and the infection rate has dramatically dropped. If not, it would be a real Hobson's Choice: Not replace my ICD and die or have surgery and potentially get a killing virus as my degenerative heart disease has my immune system compromised.

Now, this "digital wallet" business. Another example of how the tinfoil hat crowd will take something and twist it into some sort of conspiracy.

There is a provision in there to use the Fed as a vehicle to get "cash to Americans" faster, using the Fed system rather than going through the usual Treasury check route.

THe US govt doesnt have an efficient way to get cash to the citizens directly. Imagine that.

The idea is for the Fed to be able to much more efficiently get the "digi-dollars" it creates into the checking accounts of the public.

That's all it is. Now, the reality of that seems a bit reckless. Helicopter money fast. But you don't need the tinfoil.

Yes. The battery life is just over 5 years and they don't like to wait until the last minute to change it out because if I get shocked, that chews up battery life. My first ICD was replaced after just over 4 years because of the 9 recorded shocks with that device. Only one shock with the current device. I think of that as an improvement/win-win. The ablation I had in 2018 probably helped with the reduced number of shocks.

493 Not sure if anyone remembers anymore to do long term storage of eggs by coating them with lard or in water glass (sodium silicate)
Posted by: Kindltot at March 27, 2020 11:57 PM (6rS3m)

It is interesting. Until a couple of weeks ago, I never realized that a lot of cooking was really about preserving foodstuffs.

Example: Want to preserve eggs? add flour and make pasta, which keeps for ages.

495 The Pandemic was caused by Panda Express doing what they were Expressly forbidden to do.

They served up genuine Panda on the menu. The ecofreaks went nuts, it was Pandamoneum.

Now, their P.R. team is doing their best to help calm things down, but they're just Pandering to us.

It's un-bearable. They're trying to Bamboo-zle us. I think there's more trouble bruin, for sure.

And all while their Corporate Suits just fly in, sampling what few things remain on the menu. Mostly, they just eat shoots and leaves.

The hoarding item that drives me nuts is yeast.

I bake all my own bread, I ran out of yeast after about a year (I buy huge supplies at a go) and needed some more.

529 You can freeze eggs, too; you just crack them into baggies and freeze them flat. I usually do it in batches of 2 eggs and a few 3 eggs per baggie, since most recipes I make call for 2 eggs. Lasts about 6 months; if I don't have any need for them before they start getting old, I just start making a ton of omelets. (We have hens, as does everyone around us, and are usually over run with eggs.)

I doubt that's what the hoarders are doing; I imagine it's people wanting to have things on hand to make a cheap meal in anticipation of being laid off soon. Keeps them from having to immediately eat what they buy or already have for long term storage.

I've seen a lot of doom and gloom over coronavirus, but your earlier post indicates that our economy was teetering on the brink due to a drop in oil prices.

Am I misunderstanding this?
Posted by: ghbucky at March 27, 2020 11:46 PM (s9Eo

The oil war is a huge shock - all by itself it might have caused a recession, but coming at the same time as the virus scare, it guaranteed that this would be a catastrophic event.

Trump and his team also recognize this as a problem - now that the immediate problem has been dealt with, at least for a time, he is beginning to talk about options to stabilize the oil business here. Steep tariffs on all imported oil are one possibility, there are other things being discussed. Trump realizes that it is NOT in America's interest to let every shale oil producer in texas & the rest of the country go bankrupt, which will happen if he doesn't act to stop it.

Doug and the Slugs, a Vancouver band, were huge in Canada in the early '80's. Fun songs, very literate lyrics. They also did some very fine straight ballads. Doug Bennett died tragically young in 2004, only 53.

late, as i was eating dinner and chatting with Herself.

you can't make hand sanitizer out of 70% Isopropyl, or even commercially available ethanol, unless you have access to ethanol over 160 proof. you also need hydrogen peroxide and glycerin. Isopropyl needs to be at least 80%, which, IIRC, they don't make, so you need 90%, and then there is pharmacy math involved as well.

see FDA web page for details:

Wagyu on that will run in that range.

Buy the real deal, flown over fresh from Japan.

My supermarket is full of the stuff. tiny little steaks that are about 4oz and cost $30. A steak meal for me would be closer to $100 since I would need a few to be satisfied.

Then they have the aussie stuff, which is cheaper, but still about double what it costs in US. and it is always tough and stringy.

The other problem is that they cut it too thin.

652 Tom Servo, I don't know if you're still here, I took some time off from the ONT to spend with my wife and to rewire a lamp, but it isn't the idea of a stimulus that's bothering me, necessarily ( although in normal times I'm in the "let it fail" camp. If GM goes broke, Ford will buy the factories and in 6 months it'll be cranking out Mustangs rather than Cameros (simplified)). I even wrote a post about it 2 days ago, the day walkers were quite surprised to see my name on a non ONT thread. Go dad it if you're interested.

No, what bothers me is THIS stimulus, larded up with pork. We're going to find down the road that very little of it went to the people who needed it and most of it went to enrich the powerful and connected. Number two, the panic seems contrived. I know this is the conspiracy theorist part of my brain that I try very hard to suppress (we all have one), but seasonal flu events like this happen almost every year. Knowing that, how hard would it be for the powers that be/globalist/deep state/pick your term forces to plan to engineer a panic to crash the economy to shut down the populist revolt that has been going on for the past few years In an election year? I avoid conspiracy theories because they usually are complicated and stupid, but this one is not. It just requires evil men to act selfishly for power and money, and when has that not been a staple of humanity?

Some solar company in Spain did exactly that. The feed-in tariff for "green" power was so ridiculous that they could actually make a profit, running generators on diesel fuel to run the floodlights that made the solar panels kick out a few kW into the grid. Pure graft.

Heh

When the Euros required and subsidized solar in Spain, they put in thousands of hectare/acres of Chinese solar panels.

Which often produced KwH at night, sold to the power company for High Price. Because they were running diesel generators at night, and feeding it through the heavily subsidized "renewable" system.

I would be OK with unemployment checks for those who lose their jobs, and loans to companies (large and small) with the gov. assuming the risk, but this is much more. It is pork, it is 100% unemployment checks, it is loan forgiveness, ....


What happened to the idea that sometimes people have to feel pain? Their is virtue in going through hard times but our gov. claims it can make all the pain go away. In reality, it will crush the dollar, and hurt anyone without a house or stocks at the disadvantage to the young and savers. They are not eliminating pain, they are hiding it.

And these pork programs will last forever. Did the budget ever go down after the last $1T "temporary" bump?

We are back to the days of the Greenspan put where the gov. steps in whenever the market tries to go down.

As a practical matter, I don't know if you could do that. You would have to phase-match the gensets to the grid, or bad things would happen. Presumably, the grid-tie inverters for the solar panels are inherently phase-matching. Maybe you could pull DC off the gensets, and tie it to the panel side of the inverters?

It is not that it is overblown (it is), it is that by this point we should have an understanding of it. THe only population sampling data I have seen is the Diamond Princess from beginning of Jan. All other data is not a full survey so it doesn't tell you anything.

The ship data is that that (I think) 40% had NO symptoms, ever. And this was an older crowd. That means that this is a bad flu season - maybe 3x of 5x worse, but still not kill-the-economy bad.

And I think there is a hump that wuhan, Italy, and now NY go through and by the time they shut it down it is already half burnt out since most of the people are already infected. So the shutdown are a waste. I think. Maybe they save a bit. OK, let me his post I am getting riled and not being clear.

682 I was out and about today, doing essential work, delivering food for one of those 3rd-party food apps. I followed the protocols...gloves, sanitizer, distancing. Doing my part to help the local restaurants stay in business, and making a few extra bucks myself. ("Profiteering from a crisis", as my commie brother said. eyeroll). Philadelphia/South Jersey area.

My personal observances: While the lack of traffic on the roads and empty parking lots show that a lot of people are staying home, the public areas...parks, the central areas of the small suburban towns, and the restaurants that are still operating...tell me that quite a few other folks are using this as a staycation. I picked up from a popular pizza joint in Jersey, and the call-ahead pickup line was pretty long. Some people wore masks, most didn't. People did seem to be trying to keep distancing space around others. Joggers and bicyclists filled the streets and parks. The police, at least the ones that weren't parked outside of the supermarkets all day, were more interested in setting up speed traps than bothering the crowds.

Meanwhile, "they" are talking about keeping the stay-at-home orders in effect until May, June or even July. I think that is a pipe dream at this point, unless there is a huge spike in deaths from COVID. Every day the voices of the scolds get shriller, but more and more people say screw it, and go out.

It certainly is interesting times.

But that's just what you cannot do. The grid is running at 60 Hz. Diesel gensets run at 60 Hz. More or less. If a generator is to be tied to the grid, it has to match frequency and phase to the grid perfectly at all times, or the grid will backfeed the genset, and the magic smoke will escape.

689 The way I figure it, the desert SW gets about 30% more solar insolation than the rest of the country, and about double anywhere in Europe.

Those states also have load matching since when the sun is out, the AC is on, This is not perfect since spring is a lot cooler with strong sun, but much better matching than the north.

That means that the entire state of AZ, NM, W TX, and S CA should be 100% solar before it makes sense to put any solar in, for example on telephone poles all over NJ or farm fields in Germany.

I know such stuff exists. But I doubt cheap gensets have phase-matching capability. To do that, you have to be able to control running speed of the Diesel engine on a millisecond time scale.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at March 28, 2020 02:19 AM (miJU3)

701

To tie inverter output into the grid, you've got to have the proper control equipment. Inverters are "fired" by various control systems to output some semblence of a 60Hz sinusoid.

That system has to be synced with the grid and thus designed to do so.

With a regular old synchronous machine, once you get it synchronized (see the old light bulb methods for eyeballing it), it gets locked in.

Imagine such a generator tied into the grid. Open the throttle of your prime mover. You don't increase the speed, you just handle more of the load (a tiny, tiny fraction of the grid -- think of it as like infinite inertia). Now, rare back on the throttlle, trying to slow down. The grid now motorizes your generator.

If you had a power meter hooked up, you'd see power go from positive to negative.

Now, there are limits to that, such as maximum torque angle. After that, you would speed up your generator, and it would go to "swinging" and hunting.

With a regular synchronous generator, you'd don't to control the engine speed that tightly, just close enough.

Manual synchronization is cool. There are light bulb set, with two forms, synchronize on bright and synchronize on dark. Both have their pluses and minuses.

You match speed until you get as close to 60Hz as you can. Now, watch your lights. When the lights are their brightest, you could throw the generator in parallel.

There will be a little jump and whump. It is now locked into the grid. 60Hz speed is locked in.

Now, that initial jump and whump will be desructive if you don't do it at the right spot, but once you're locked in, you're locked in.

709 I know such stuff exists. But I doubt cheap gensets have phase-matching capability. To do that, you have to be able to control running speed of the Diesel engine on a millisecond time scale.
Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at March 28, 2020 02:19 AM (miJU3)

I am saying run the diesel generator into an M-G set. So the generator drives a motor, and that motor drive a generator.

Without the M-G set, I think the speed of the engine would be on the bottom of a stable curve controlled by power and lag angle. If the angle got too big (the engine moving faster than the generator wants to) the load would increase slowing the engine,.. etc.

The only way these would work is if it was self-stable. But what do I know. I have taken classes in this crap (last class at my uni. which did) but never worked in the field.

There are so very many 'lessons' for math and science in everyday living. when did parents, particularly Moms, forget how to teach their children?? If you can't even read a book to kids, or help them write an old-fashioned letter to someone they love, you have failed as a parent. Buy some seeds, herbs and veggies for sustenance and some flowers for beauty, you can let the virus own you or you can extract some type of renewal from it. Rant off, love the Horde.

Well, I for one ain't good with that, unless there are donuts.

853 Here in Ohio, Gov. DeWine and Dr. Acton are doing everything they can to terrorize the populace. DeWine says the peak won't be until May (um...I though Wuhan Lung Rot was super contagious?). Acton says we could see 6000-8000 new cases per day in about 2 weeks (um ... NYC has seen an increase of about 5100 new cases between March 19 and March 26 in total AND that's the epicenter with 50% of all the cases in the entire U.S.)

I despise those two imbeciles. Every day it becomes more apparent that they over-reacted. I have stopped listening to their press briefings and I can't be the only Ohioan to tune them out.

Even Gov. Cuomo has changed his tune a bit. He is now saying that maybe shutting everything down wasn't such a good idea and the spread seems to be slowing in NYC. We're getting more and more anecdotal reports that the HCQ + Z-pack therapy works in the interim while clinical trials are conducted on more specific treatments and vaccine.

My roommate has left the house in one of the THE most hard hit areas of the coutnry because your incredibly biased and insipid stance that wuhan flu is nothing.
Because "ACE SAID" "MUH ACE SAIDTH"
Because of your blog alone.

Your blog where you get to enjoy 150 k plus a year in revenue if just your own personal fifedom.

You can guess by the IP cross reference who my roommate is.
Instead of a getting a coding job, he spends all his time on here.And now because you can not HANDLE staying inside for lockdown, you want everyone else to view it the way YOU incorrectly view it.
So this person decided even though we're in a state where people should stay inside for now (since no one is smart enough to wear masks everywhere) that he should go on a "booze run."

Thanks a lot for influencing people in the most dangerous direction.
The wuhan fluz is nothing. No portable cremators in Wuhan. No 45k urns given out in wuhan.
